Description

It's ok, you can admit it. Sometimes motherhood seems less like the sweetness of a Pamper's commercial and more like a scene out of Jaws. Here at the Mother Like a Boss Podcast, we dive into the good, the bad and the ugly of motherhood and modern homemaking, with honest conversations, tips, strategies and tools.

Episode Date
Ep 094 Running a home when you're self-employed
26:50

It's funny to think that I've been self-employed for as long as I have been a mom and homemaker, but I've raised both my business and kiddos together.

Doing either of those two things can be stressful and time consuming enough, but doing them both at the same time take a bit of strategy (and a whole lot of letting go)

Today, I'm taking you behind the scenes into how I run my home as a self-employed mama with a self-employed husband as well.

Ep 093 The father behind Mother Like a Boss
01:00:57

Back by popular demand is the father like a boss himself, my husband Adam. Creating and leading my mission has been a joy for me, but it isn't always easy. With kids and a home to keep up with, having someone by my side that supports me, loves me and encourages me while also taking on half of the responsibility like a good partner should has been more important than anything.

Join us for a fun, sometimes serious, sometimes silly chat about what it's like from the dad's point of view and how he views homemaking from a father's point of view.

Ep 091 Why I don't balance work & home
25:05

To balance, by definition, means to distribute weight evenly or keep in a steady position so it doesn't fall. That doesn't sound like the kind of carefree and exciting way I want to run my business, run my home or mother my children. I've heard so much about "work/life balance" since I became a mother and entrepreneur and quite honestly, I don't practice it.

Whether you're trying to do it all and exhausting yourself by trying to walk the tightrope of work and home, or children and marriage, or work and personal, this episode is meant to encourage you to embrace the harmony of life through systems, not perfect and equal balance.

Ep 089 Get rid of what doesn't serve you
07:16

If it isn't bringing you happiness, why is it still in your life? We hold onto things, physical and otherwise for too long. What doesn't serve us is taking up space in our home, our relationships and our souls. Time to let go of what isn't serving us.

Ep 087 The power of positive parenting w/ Rachel Bailey
42:06

When I started Mother Like a Boss, I knew there was one area that I wasn’t going to pretend to be an expert in: parenting. While I’ve learned a lot over the years, I wanted to bring positive parenting experts to my audience that are teaching parenting from a place of positivity and happiness.

Today, I’m so thrilled to introduce you to Rachel Bailey of Redefining Perfect Parenting. This interview is really more of a candid discussion between two moms who believe wholeheartedly is helping moms become confident in their abilities through better communication, happiness and positivity.

Rachel is spilling some serious knowledge and truth bombs on everything from the role that cognitive development plays into chores to letting our children feel a range of emotions and teaching them to ride them out. If you’re ready to redefine perfect parenting, come along for a listen.

BONUS EPISODE | How to live your best mom year, EVER
27:17

There is a heartbreaking trend I am seeing: Moms who don’t take the time to live their best lives because they are two wrapped up in helping others live theirs.

So today, I’m making a special announcement for the moms out there that are ready to live their best mom year, free from resolutions they won’t commit to or achieve. Instead, we’re focusing on goals and how you can set them without stress and achieve them on a timeline that works for you.

This is a revolution against resolutions. Join us!

Ep 085 Creating a "sick kit" for your home
20:39

With the holiday season and cooler weather (at least where I live) comes the runny noses and scratchy throats. But no matter what time of year it is, being sick or caring for someone in your home that's sick is no fun.

A "sick kit" should really be called a "well kit" because that's the goal. The goal of a sick kit is to keep the things on hand that we'll need to get well, so we're not making those late night trips to the drug store or scrambling for what we need.

In today's episode, I'm getting into the details of creating a kit or basket for your home and for your family.

Ep 083: 4 ways you're making the holidays harder than they have to be
22:54

It’s beginning to look a lot like…stress?

I love the holidays so much and the last few months of the year are my favorite, but I also understand that with that comes the possibility of stress and exhaustion.

When I became a mom, I really wanted to make the holiday season as fun for our little family as possible and in the process, took on too many things and let my boundaries fall away. Today, I’m talking about the 4 ways we’re making the holidays way harder than they have to be, and how to approach them with more ease and peace.

Tis the season for joy and love, mama.

Ep 080: 3 ways I'm still a homemaking work in progress
15:09

I’m not perfect and to be honest, I don’t want to be. Running a home and a business simultaneously means there’s a whole lot of room for error and I welcome that. Mistakes are the lessons that allow me to be better, to do better and to teach better.

I’ve come a long way and homemaking is much easier now than it’s ever been before (thank you routines) but I’m still a work in progress. In the spirit of total transparency, I’m sharing 3 of the ways I’m still working on myself. Our goals shouldn’t be to get to a finish line, but instead run the race that feels as enjoyable as possible. That’s life. That’s motherhood.

Ep 074: 5 things I do everyday to keep my home running
22:23

Running my home is something I have come to love more than most things in my life. I get a lot of satisfaction out of living in a home that feels managed and unburdened by stress. There are a few key habits I've formed that help me do that.

Today, I'm pulling back the curtain and sharing 5 things I do everyday (ish. Everyday-ish...) that keep my home running like a well-oiled machine and not like my '93 Toyota Tercel. These habits have been formed over time, after a lot of trial and error. They keep us on track as a family and me on track as a mom, wife and business CEO.

Pregnancy and motherhood can do a number on our bodies and spirits, much of which is unexpected. It can feel scary which makes it ever more important to honor this time and advocate for ourselves and our health.

I’m honored to have Catherine Middlebrooks on the podcast today to discuss the importance of self-advocacy in women. She also has an exciting story of traveling the country in an RV with her husband and two kids.

Ep 071: How to develop a nightly routine you can fall in love with
35:25

I have a pretty strict philosophy in my home: if it can be done at night rather than in the morning, I'm doing it. I love my nighttime routine with all my heart because it allows me to go to bed, set up for success for the next day before it even begins. I want to make future me proud of present me and not grumpy for having to start the morning off in chaos.

Today, we're talking not only about the importance of having a great evening routine, but how you can start to create one that you can stick to and fall in love with.

Ep 070 From pregnant college dropout to mom boss CEO
01:22:02

I took a very deep breath as I hit publish on this episode. I’m raw, I’m vulnerable, I’m speaking my truth and telling my story. My journey from a young and naive 22 year old pregnant college drop out to mom boss CEO now has not been without it’s issues and hurdles. In fact, the path has been littered with roadblocks and navigating them has taught me the true meaning of grace.

My story is an important part of my greater mission to reach moms where they are now and empower them to be the best version of themselves. I hope you hear my words (through held back tears at many points) and let them inspire you to go forth in your mom journey with confidence.

Ep 068: Dealing with toxic relationships as a mom
34:52

We're deviating a bit from the lightheartedness of Mother Like a Boss to discuss a pretty important topic: toxic relationships.

We know them. We've been a part of them in some form. They strip us of joy and keep us wrapped up in stress.

This episode is my call out to all my sweet mamas that are dealing with or engaged in toxic relationships right now, whether in the home, with family, at work or with friends. You deserve better. You can make the choices to eliminate the toxic parties and relationships from your life.

34:16

There is no denying the power of literature and reading as it applies to raising our kiddos, but how many of us are thinking about this intentionally? How many of us parents are looking to build intentional bookshelves for our children that mirror the values we want to instill in them?

I'm pleased to have Samantha Munoz of Addison Reads on the show to discuss the importance of cultivating a purposeful library in our homes and how literature can help us with a myriad of parenting issues. Samantha is throwing down her best tips and tricks for choosing books that light you up and how to organize them without the need for expensive shelves and decor.

If you need a burst of encouragement today, let this be it. You don't need a fancy hack to get started. You don't need the next best motivational tool. You don't need to know the perfect place to start. Just start somewhere. The only way to make progress to get moving.

Ep 065: My work-at-home mom schedule
28:13

I've always been what society would consider a "working mom" although my belief is that every mom is a working mom. Since my oldest daughter was a tiny little bean inside my belly, I have owned and operated my very own business. Since going all in with Mother Like a Boss and ending my cleaning business almost 17 months ago, my schedule has dramatically changed.

Although my schedule may not look similar to yours, I wanted to give you a glimpse inside my day-to-day routines, how I worked at home before my son was in school and how it works now. Even if you don't run a business or work from home, I hope this episode is encouraging to moms of all types who want a better handle on daily routines and habits.

Ep 064: From lack mindset in motherhood to abundance
28:55

The last 8 years of my life has been spent opening my mind up fully to the idea of how abundant our universe is and therefore, how abundant we are in life. We live with pure abundance all around us and have the ability to live from a place of unlimited possibilities, especially as mothers and yet we’re surrounded by lack mindset, lack vocabulary, lack beliefs.

The very idea of motherhood is abundant. We birth or become the caretakers of other human beings and have the capacity to open our hearts to them. It’s like love sprouts of of no where. That’s true abundance and the more we embrace that, the more enjoyable our everyday (sometimes seemingly mundane) lives will feel.

Ep 063: Mindset like a boss Monday- Cleaning doesn't have to suck
07:43

Today's mindset shift is brought to you by the ability to clean without dragging your feet and having a toddler-like temper tantrum. We've all been there, giving the side-eye to the daily cleaning and negatively discussing how much it sucks. It doesn't have to and the more you perpetuate that belief, the more you'll find yourself hating it. 

Cleaning isn't a punishment for living in your home anymore than brushing your teeth is a punishment for eating. It's a privilege to have full lives where messes occur. Change your mindset, change your life.

Ep 061: The ever changing seasons of motherhood w/ Meagan Francis
52:58

Motherhood, like life, is a series of ever-changing seasons. There are ebbs and flows, and sometimes curveballs we didn’t expect. The key isn’t to learn how to avoid the changes, but how to roll with them.

I had the pleasure of inviting Meagan Francis on the show today, a mom of 5 and one half of the wildly popular podcast The Mom Hour. We talk about her start in the mom blogosphere and our similar takes on the often dangerous “hot mess mom” culture.

Meagan throws down a lot of truth and doesn't hold back. Our conversation was honest and open about the realities of motherhood and how to get through them without being a martyr.

Ep 060: Mindset like a boss Monday- Stop the self-sabotage
08:52

Today's mindset shift is all about eliminating the sabotaging behaviors we all fall into. Whether it’s perfectionism, that nagging pull to procrastinate or just a pervasive desire to completely go against what you know is best, self-sabotage completely interferes with our ability to achieve amazing goals.

Time to love ourselves fully and stop the sabotaging behavior.

Ep 059: Sticking to routines when your life is unpredictable
22:14

Our lives aren't always as cookie-cutter as we had planned them to be. Life as a mom can be messy and unpredictable. Between work schedules, extracurriculars, sports, partners that travel and a myriad of other things that pop up each day, our day-to-day tasks can be unpredictable. So how do you stick to a solid routine when you don't live a routine life?

In this episode, I'm introducing the idea of a "floating routine" and how helpful it can be for keeping your life running smooth (ish) even if your daily life and schedule doesn't feel conductive to routines. The more out-of-control your life feels, the more routines will save you.

Ep 058: How to chill out when it comes to motherhood and making your home
27:54

When I put a call out to my audience to see what topics you most wanted to hear about, this answer struck me in such a hilariously real way: "Can you do an episode on how to chill out as a mom?" Could that be filled with anymore truth about how motherhood feels sometimes?

You asked, I answered. This episode is a tribute to the chill and how to achieve it in motherhood and home management. There is no greater burden in our lives than feeling stressed and out of control. In this episode, I tackle how to let go of control and how to embrace the ever changing (and ever-chaotic) seasons of motherhood without freaking out.

Let's chill, girl.

Welcome to our very first episode of this new format. Are you ready to MINDSET like a boss?

Ep 056: Stay productive, not busy
26:55

Busy is the new fine.

How many times do you answer "BUSY!" when someone asks how you are. Not, "Wonderful. Lovely. Super excited for this life. Peaceful. Calm. Wishing I had a taco right now." No, instead, it's "Really busy."

Mel Robbins said it best when she truthfully bombed us with, "Business is the ultimate form of laziness. Staying busy is our way of avoiding the things we really need to do."

I've committed my life to being full and productive, not busy. I want to fill my minutes with efficiency, not bleed them dry until my entire family is fall-down exhausted.

This episode will take you through the differences between business and productivity and how to become productive with the time you have. No more idle busy work for you, mama.

Ep 055: How I'm embracing a new season in my life (and an announcement on what's coming up!)
28:06

I'm right at the edge of a brand new season in my life and for our family; a season unlike any I have had in the past. This season is one of change in the form of kids entering new schools and me having more time. Don't be fooled. More time isn't always a good thing. More time just means more time to waste if we're not intentional with it.

This episode is all about how I'm embracing this new season and how you can do the same, with whatever season life has for you now. Change can feel scary and overwhelming because of the unexpected, but we can embrace change and the adventures it brings.

And speaking of new seasons, I'm also sharing how the podcast is getting a facelift this fall and what you can expect from our new and improved weekly lineup. My mission is to serve you in every way I can, and this new format speaks directly to that mission.

Finally, I want to give shout you all out and use all the praise hand emojis here. The Mother Like a Boss Podcast has hit 200,000 downloads in it's first 7 month and YOU made that happen. You listened, you shared, you came back week after week. I'm grateful in ways I can't even express. Thank you for being a part of this journey and for trusting me each week. You the real MVPs, mamas!

Here's to 200,000 more!

Ep 054: How to tell if you're making excuses (so you can finally stop!)
24:18

Excuses, excuses. We're all full of them, and after a while it can become difficult to tell the difference between our excuses and reality. Excuses are very different than explanations. Excuses keep us victims of our own circumstances.

For years, I made excuses for why I wasn't able to get things done the way other people could in various parts of my life. My excuses kept me stuck, but comfortable. This episode is a kick in the butt for anyone that wants to break free of the excuse-making cycle and take control of their own life.

We're doing things a little different this summer when it comes to interviews. Rather than bring on an expert in a particular field, I invited real moms with real struggles to come on the show to share with us what they are going through in motherhood and at home. Sometimes, just hearing another mom ask a question that you've always had is exactly the thing you need to motivate you toward change and improvement.

Today, I have the pleasure of introducing you to Micah Paschall, a Mother Like a Boss student with a beautiful heart and story. It takes a brave woman to discuss her past and present feelings about homemaking open and honestly. We had a great chat about making habits and routines stick and I help her to create more non-negotiable chores for her children.

35:55

I can't believe it's already time to do a back-to-school episode, but here we are. Time, it is a flyin' always. I know that most moms start the year off with the year off with the best of intentions. "This is the school year that I get our collective ish organized and staying that way!" and then by mid-October, you're in full-on chaos mode and not sure how you got there.

Today's episode is aimed to help you start, and keep a system that will make this the most organized school year yet. Start now and thank yourself in December when you've still got it all together, running smoothly.

It takes courage to speak about her struggles with bipolar disorder and she does so with strength and openness. We had a wonderful chat on how she can plan her routines around her life, rather than the other way around and how to stick to household and motherhood routines even in the face of difficult circumstances.

Will all of these work for you? Maybe not. This is based on my own opinion and what I've found gives you the most bang for your buck. Your caddy doesn't need to be overflowing with cleaning bottles to be effective.

Ep 047: 5 ways to get through chores you really dislike
18:42

Although we all know those household chores have to get done, it doesn't mean you have to like them, right? It's a real pain going through life doing things you don't enjoy, but the truth is, you don't have to hate chores or cleaning.

Ep 046: A peek inside my daily journaling practice
35:44

I've been a journaling gal since the time I could write. I loved having diaries. I loved having beautiful journals and #allthepens to write with. Writing has always been cathartic for me and a great way to achieve the goals I set for myself. Journaling brings me closer to who I want to be.

But listen, I know journaling can seem extremely overwhelming. What do you write? How long do you write? What kind of journal is best? Should I use prompts? What if I am drawing a blank here? Today, I'm pulling back the curtain of my daily journaling practice and giving you the scoop on how this simple habit has helped me become a better mom, a more successful business owner and a happier woman all around.

Ep 045: Setting boundaries like a mother
31:25

I see you over there, mama. Guilt-ridden every time you say no and always want to please others. You wonder how you can feel better about what you say yes to and how you can live a life that feels more joy-filled and less resent-driven. The answer is boundaries.

I am what I like to call a "boundary ninja" but it hasn't always been that way. I spent many years of my life letting people in my business and personal life walk all over me for fear of stepping up and saying no. A boundary is the ultimate show of love, as you can say yes and be open wholeheartedly without resentment or anger. 

This episode is all about helping you build your emotional fence high enough so that the only people coming in are the ones you have allowed.

Ep 042: How we create a summer bucket list
25:53

I love summer. Aside from the humidity and obnoxious mosquitos, the summer is such a wonderful time to spend together as a family. But as we all know, we start the summer with the best of intentions to do #allthethings and end the summer with the realization that all we did was sit inside next to the AC waiting for school to start again.

A summer bucket list is an excellent way to prepare for the months ahead by deciding what you really want to be doing as a family. In this episode, I'm talking about how we do it in our home and how it's helped us create a summer schedule full of fun without the chaos and FOMO.

Ep 041: How to cultivate a productive (and fun!) summer while the kids are home
29:06

Friends, I have a confession to make: While I usually have a lot of my stuff together, last summer was a real wake up call for me. As a mama who always worked outside of the home, my first summer as a full time work-at-home mom was challenging. Summer (and any season changes in nature and our life) forces us to switch up our routines, for better or worse.

Today's episode is a discussion about how to cultivate a productive summer at home with the kids, while also having fun! There is no need to fall down the rabbit hole of chaos and distress during the summer months. Learn from my mistakes and let's grow together, mama!

Ep 036: Giving 100% without being a perfectionist
18:04

Perfectionism is a dirty little secret that a lot of us moms keep everyday. Whether it keeps you in a state of paralysis or shows up as procrastination, perfectionism steal our joy and stops us from making progress.

Effort however is far different than perfection. Effort feels good. The end result feels comforting, even if it's not the "perfect" outcome. You can give your all without the need to be perfect. Perfection comes from the outside. Idealism comes from the inside.

In this episode, I'm giving a little pep talk on how to give 100% everyday without having to feed into perfectionistic tendencies that will leave you feeling unsatisfied.

25:50

I've said it before and I will say it again, the most important person in your life is YOU. Did that make you feel all sorts of weird? We've been fed a line as moms that everyone else should come before us, when in reality, putting yourself first is the most compassionate thing you can do for others.

When I'm in a place of alignment with my own self, I show up as a more amazing mom, wife, friend, mentor, sister and human being. This episode is dedicated to the mom that has been in last place on her to-do list for too long. It's time to go first, friend.

I had the pleasure of interviewing Shelly Robinson from Alively and I know you will fall in love with her as much as I have.

Ep 029: How routines (and grace) helped me survive my postpartum season
30:25

The postpartum season of life brings about a lot of joy, a lot of tears and many times, a lot of emotions we aren't prepared for. In my care, that emotion was anxiety. After waiting 6 years to have another baby, I was thrust back into baby mode and honestly, wasn't prepared. I spent many nights sobbing, wondering how I was ever going to get back on track. My new routines (and a whole lot of grace) saved me.

While routines will not be the fix for all moms in this difficult stage, especially those dealing with crippling depression, it gave me more peace than I had in a long time. The predictability of my routines gave me strength and handed me some of the control I felt like I lost when I gave birth to my precious boy.

This is another heart-driven episode that I am honored to share with you.

Ep 027: What are priorities, really and why are they so valuable
25:18

As mamas, we like to think we have our priorities in order. Obviously, our kids take top billing, but what about the other very important people in our lives, like ourselves?! Priorities can be tricky because we convince ourselves that they are set in stone when in reality, our priorities can change day to day, even minute to minute. What's more important than sticking to one set "most important thing" is realizing what is most important to you in the moment and staying the course with that. 

This episode dives into the feelings and emotions behind our priorities and how we can make better choices (and set better boundaries) to be certain that every step we take is with intention and purpose.

Ep 026: How I set homemakerish goals for my home and life
39:27

I'm pretty intent on living my best homemakerish life and a big part of making that happen is setting clear and intentional goals for my home and life. Goals don't need to be grandiose. They don't need to feel like unattainable dreams. Goals are nothing more than the end result you want to achieve. They are the last stop on the GPS. Where are you headed and where do you want to end up? You can't plot your course if you don't know where you want to be.

This episode is all about how I set goals for my home, my business, my family and my life and the process I take to ensure that I actually achieve those goals (rather than procrastinating watching yet another episode of Breaking Bad for the 19th time...)

Ep 025: When grace becomes an excuse
19:48

There may be nothing that moms in our world need more than a heaping spoonful of grace. We're bombarded with images of perfectionism wherever we turn and knowing when to give ourselves the grace not to give into that is a beautiful thing.

But what happens when the grace we give ourselves and others becomes a cycle of excuses? What happens when the seasons of life we've been struggling through aren't seasons anymore, but just out life? Are we truly giving ourselves grace, or are we swinging to the other side of the pendulum by making excuses to avoid our fear of failure in any area of our life?

Ep 022: A homemakerish guide to spring(ish) cleaning- Part 1
41:20

It's that most wonderful time of the year for your house. It's time for spring cleaning. Time to break out the extra cleaning supplies, roll up your sleeves and get to work...or not.

I have a different approach to spring cleaning. It doesn't need to be done in the spring. In fact, it should get done multiple times a year to save you the arduous task of having to spend entire weekends scrubbing and wiping for hours on end.

In this two part episode, I'm going to break down how to go about your spring(ish) cleaning, whether you're getting down to it in early April or late October, or both.

Ep 021: How we live with minimal paper
35:47

Truth be told, I really hate paperwork. I love to organize it, but I hate having it clutter up my home and my life. My husband and I have an unspoken rule in our house that we will keep the papers to a minimal, but that can be really difficult for people who hold on to the notion that papers are more important than they actually are. 

Today's episode is all about my journey to minimize the amount of paperwork we bring into and keep in our home. If our family of 4 (2 of whom own businesses) can do it, you can too, mama!

54:29

How often do you feel like you're just going through the motions of motherhood? Where there used to be intention, there seems now to be a discouraging cycle that you don't even remember becoming a part of. Today, I'm pleased to have my friend Kelsey Van Kirk on to have an open and honest discussion about what purposeful motherhood looks like and her feelings about being created for the life we live.

Ep 018: My home birth and what it taught me about mommy judgement- Part 1
33:34

This episode comes straight from the heart and took me quite a while to finally decide I would record. Not because I didn't want to talk about it, but because I knew it would be emotional for me. This is part 1 of of a two part series dedicated to my home birth and what it taught me about mommy judgement.

You'll hear me discuss how I decided that home birth was right for us, what kind of research I did and eventually, the discouragement I felt when I received unsolicited advice and opinions. While home birth is the topic, this can go for any mommy topic out there.

Ep 015: The power of momentum over motivation
27:31

How often do you sit around waiting to be hit with a rush of motivation to do what you know you should do (but don't want to) only to realize that motivation just isn't coming? Motivation is a desire or willingness to do something, but what do you know about the 99% of tasks in your life you have no desire to do, but know you need to? That's where momentum comes in.

This is a topic I preach quite a bit to my students, because waiting for motivation to do something you don't want to do is a procrastination technique. In this episode, I'm getting real about why momentum is the real key to productivity and ending procrastination.

We live abundantly full lives as moms, and sometimes our to-do lists read more like novels than easy-to-follow reminders. I used to be obsessed with list making and even call myself a recovering junkie. The truth is, I used my to-do lists as a way to procrastinate what I actually needed to do.

Oh laundry. That task that seems never ending. The chore that, the second it is done, turns around and mockingly says, "Just kidding, girl. You ain't done with me."

Ep 009: How I'm raising kids who help around the house
29:26

I decided a long time ago (well, when I started having kids, really) that I wouldn’t be the only one in the house cleaning, doing laundry to tidying up. I wanted to create a community in our home, one where everyone does there part based on what they are capable of. This is exactly what we’ve done and with an 11 and 5 year old, I am able to step back and let them help.

Not only does creating cleaning routines and chores for your children take the load off of the parents, it’s a learning experience for them as well. I’m a big believer in creating responsible little humans who understand that their messes are their responsibility, and that when we all work together, things get done faster. It isn’t always easy, but I’m going to share some of my best tips for raising kids who help around the house (without you having to nag nag nag)

Affirmations have been an absolute game-changer in my life and as a mother. Why? Because when I became aware of how my words affected my reality, I was more conscientious of which words I used. More than anything, affirmations have become a daily practice that help me shift my mindset from lack and frustration, to abundance and happiness. And who couldn't use a little more of that?

Today, you'll hear my thoughts of why affirmations are so important for moms, how you can get started and what kinds of affirmations you can say to change the way you view your life. It isn't as hard as it sounds, and it isn't magic. Anyone can do it!

Ep 001: Is homemaking still important in 2018?
27:03

Homemaking is something I talk a lot about in my business, but I didn't start out that way. I used to completely shy away from the word, thinking it was totally antiquated and not at all fitting to who I was or what I did. There are a lot of myths floating around about homemaking and it is my mission to bring those myths to light, squash them and show moms that even the most modern women can be homemakerish without shame. Today, I want to answer the question, is homemaking really still important in 2018?

In this episode we'll dive into:

  • What homemaking really is (and what it isn't)
  • How home management and homemaking work together to give you an organized house and warm home.
  • Why I used to feel so negatively about homemaking and what helped me changed that.
  • How one person's insensitive comment to me about moms gave me the confidence to teach even more homemaking tips and strategies.
  • Why homemaking and martyrdom don't have to be the same thing.
  • What we can do as modern women to embrace homemaking and home management (hint...it involves delegating the work to other people!)
  • Some common myths about modern homemaking and how we can finally let go of them.
